1 Peter 4:8-10
And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
Use hospitality one to another without grudging.
As every man hath received the gift, even so, minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
PRE-AMBLE by Robert
Have you wondered what is occurring, why is this Malady happening? Why is it so potently contagious? These questions brought me to prayer, and the Holy Spirit brought this forward (James 3:16). For where envying and strife are, there is confusion and every evil work.
My question, how could this apply to the Malady happening to mankind globally? What do envying and strife have to do with a spreading disease? I see fear and panic globally, I see the beginnings of social conflict, forms of sporting entertainment, education, and business, being affected by the fear and panic brought on by this Malady.
The further I researched, the more it became apparent of how envying and strife had become the basis of the fear and panic, which has gripped people globally. We know Satan needs a doorway to function. We also know it is his aim and goal to capture, control and steal as many souls as possible.
We received a warning of what was coming in the following article republished Feb. 17, 2020, It is known those who walk in righteousness having been warned of upcoming upheaval, within the ranking leaders, should take heed and prepare for a colossal manifestation of evil. As pointed out in the warning as mentioned earlier, we are literally and figuratively witnessing this evil manifesting and spreading globally.
How it was introduced into the global society has not been indeed revealed, as there are a few theories, none proven. It is believed the initial story was a coverup, none the less this evil entered our realm and is hard at work establishing itself globally.
OPENING STATEMENT by Robert
I can hear the comments now, “wow,” equating a physical malady to an evil manifestation entering into the world. Really, come on that is so far fetched it’s bordering on being delusional.
If your walk is in the world and you believe totally in science, this article may appear to be bordering on delusion. However, if you walk Spiritually with God and Yeshua, you may initially question. However, as more scriptural research is revealed, discernment will rule.
Prayer and meditation brought this forward, in order to defeat an enemy, you first must have them within their own ranks being divided, separated and most of all Confused. The enemy has put all three in place. Recall I related nothing happens physically which has not first occurred spiritually. When you measure the current malady it becomes more understanding and discernable.
If you look around, those walking in the world are looking for an answer while being in a state of fear, confusion, and mildly in disagreement of what approach to take.
CLOSING STATEMENT by Robert
As we observe the fear and confusion taking hold, it becomes obvious what Matthew Henry relates in his commentary on Philippians 4:8-9. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
The exhortation itself: So stand fast in the Lord. Being in Christ, they must stand fast in him, be even and steady in their walk with him, and close and constant unto the end. Or, To stand fast in the Lord is to stand fast in his strength and by his grace not trusting in ourselves, and disclaiming any sufficiency of our own.
We must be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might, (Ephesians 6:10) “So stand fast, so as you have done hitherto, stand fast unto the end, so as you are my beloved, and my joy and crown so stand fast as those in whose welfare and perseverance I am so nearly interested and concerned.”
Hebrews 11:6. It is said that without this faith it is impossible to please God, without such a faith as helps us to walk with God, an active faith, and that we cannot come to God unless we believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of those that diligently seek him (1) He must believe that God is and that he is what he is, what he has revealed himself to be in the scripture, a Being of infinite perfections, subsisting in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
Note, The practical belief of the existence of God, as revealed in the word, would be a powerful awe-band upon our souls, a bridle of restraint to keep us from sin, and a spur of constraint to put us upon all manner of gospel obedience (2) That he is a rewarder of those that diligently seek him.
Here observe,  By the fall we have lost God we have lost the divine light, life, love, likeness, and communion  God is again to be found of us through Yeshua, the second Adam  God has prescribed means and ways wherein he may be found too with, strict attention to his oracles, attendance on his ordinances, and ministers duly discharging their office and associating with his people, observing his providential guidance, and in all things humbly waiting his gracious presence.
Believers have a race to run, a race of service and a race of sufferings, a course of active and passive obedience 2. This race is set before them it is marked out unto them, both by the word of God and the examples of the faithful servants of God, that cloud of witnesses with which they are compassed about. It is set out by proper limits and directions the mark they run to, and the prize they run for, are set before them 3. This race must be run with patience and perseverance.
There will be a need for patience to encounter the difficulties that lie in our way, of perseverance to resist all temptations to desist or turn aside. Faith and patience are the conquering graces, and therefore must be always cultivated and kept in lively exercise 4. Believers have a greater example to animate and encourage them in their Christian course than any or all who have been mentioned before, and that is the Lord Yeshua: Looking unto Yeshua, the author and finisher of our faith, Hebrews 12:2.
Here observe, (1) What our Lord Yeshua is to his people: he is the author and finisher of their faith–the beginning, perfecter, and rewarder of it  He is the author of their faith not only the object but the author. He is the great leader and precedent of our faith, he trusted in God he is the purchaser of the Spirit of faith, the publisher of the rule of faith, the efficient cause of the grace of faith, and in all respects, the author of our faith  He is the finisher of our faith he is the fulfiller and the fulfilling of all scripture-promises and prophecies he is the perfecter of the canon of scripture he is the finisher of grace, and of the work of faith with power in the souls of his people and he is the judge and the rewarder of their faith he determines who they are that reach the mark, and from him, and in him, they have the prize.
To finish this article, those who only hear the word are self-deceivers, the original word, signifies men’s arguing sophistically to themselves their reasoning is manifestly deceitful and false. They persuade themselves by filling their minds with notions believed to be sufficient, though their hearts are empty of good affections and resolutions. their lives fruitless of good works. Self-deceit is found to be the worst deceit.
Finally, our demonstration should reflect the proper use of the word of God, so we are not seen as those who use it improperly, but rather making the correct use of it, (James 1:23-25). Our walk should reveal the word of God revealing our sins, so we may repent and receive God’s pardon, as well what temptations we stumbled on so we can remove it from our lives. We will find mirrors to flatter, however, but will discern God’s word (mirror reflecting our heartfelt intent) is not used to flatter but to reveal. Those who find they are in the position of flattering themselves, the bottom line here, Yeshua flatters “No Man.”
During the time of distress and confusion for the non-believer within this pandemic, our demonstration can play a significant role by carefully using God’s word properly which will subtly set before those present the nature of the confusion, disorder and corruption in their hearts and lives.
Our walk as a believer in God’s word reflecting the proper use of God’s word will expose the false belief for the unbeliever that all is right with them, thinking they in comparison to the world’s standards are attractive and OK. But when they see our walk it becomes like a reflection in a mirror of the sins in their lives. They are able to recognize the delusion leading them deeper into confusion and despair.
Our reflection of God’s light during these times of confusion and fear, through you being calm, informed, reflecting your faith in God, in the face of this current pandemic, by using God’s word properly it becomes a mirror revealing to other’s, you have something they eventually will want. Your demonstration reassures them they can obtain it.
Remember, these messages are given by a humble servant obedient to our Lord Yeshua as a “Watchman.” I pray for all. ”Our Heavenly Father brings us to the river which bringeth forth fruit so we may partake of its sustenance and be filled spiritually with nurturing wisdom, and humble dedication in service to Yeshua.“ “Blessings to All.” As you go forward in peace, knowledge, and strength. In the name of Yeshua, we pray Amen and Amen.
